Customized Display Case
We created these display cases for our Aurèle ‘Lost Dog’ Ricard exhibition we hosted during the 2018 Bangkok Art Biennale. We created a square base in hand-welded solid brass, in which we inlaid a wooden tray clad with leather. We outsourced the acrylic dome.

More and more clients contact us with a question to create from scratch. Some clients offer their own sketches, others have faith in our eye and let us design for them.
Feel free to reach out with your specific questions, share any reference photos, and try to be as specific as possible: let us know which materials you’d prefer, ideal dimensions and any information you can think of to help us understand what you are looking for.
We will study your brief, get back to you with any further questions we might have and give you an idea of budget. Should the budget be too high we can discuss alternatives (changing materials, tweak the design, …).
Please note that we will not accept requests to copy existing designs by others.
We hand-pick our leathers from local tanneries and do love a natural look. We chose hides which show ‘traces of the beast’: some necklines and marks remain visible. We buff the leather for a soft natural look and apply an oil finish: We like the traces of age and usage, and compare this to the look of horse saddles, weathered belts or really great leather shoes, worn for years. Antique dealers call this ‘patina’ and our chairs will become witnesses of decades-long use. It is up to you to apply some neutral saddle oil or cream to maintain your chairs. All this to mention we do not ‘plastic-coat’ our leather. Our chairs, as our tables, are never perfect, they look natural and will age with grace.
Don’t worry! We ship about one third of our creations overseas and enjoy a near perfect track-record. Do contact us if you’d have any questions or concerns. We’ll get back to you within 12 hours.
Delivery to the port nearest to you (by sea)
This is the most affordable shipping option. You will need to arrange transport from the nearest port to your (client) home. There are two options:
- With help of a provided customs broker who arranges all the paperwork for you and informs where and when to pick up the crate(s). Since COVID-19 outbreak this custom broker service costs a flat fee of 1,300 US Dollar and is included in our quotation. All other costs are included, except some charges* at destination which cannot be pre-paid.
- With help of a customs broker of your choice who arranges all the paperwork for you and informs where and when to pick up the crate(s). He will invoice you directly. All other costs are included, except some charges* which cannot be pre-paid.
Delivery to your – or your client’s – doorstep (by air or by sea)
A customs broker handles all the paperwork and informs when the shipment is scheduled and when they would deliver. All costs are included except some local charges* at destination which cannot be pre-paid. We will always advise both DHL by air and sea shipping costs.
Note: to date we cannot arrange ‘White Glove’ delivery from Thailand: you should arrange help to uncrate, install and remove packaging. In reality a little pocket money to delivery people can do wonders. For larger items we suggest checking with the customs broker in advance if they are willing to offer that extra service.
Overview of charge* at destination
・ Local VAT (there is no import-tax on our furniture).
・ Merchandise processing fee = 0.3464% of value (USA).
・ Harbor maintenance fee = 0.125% of value (USA).
・ Storage fee (as per receipt, if any).
・ Customs inspection fee (as per receipt, if any).
・ Destination terminal fee (based on warehouse’s tariff which is different for each warehouse at destination port).
Due to COVID-19, there are huge fluctuations in the shipping fees at the moment. Unfortunately for us, we can only secure shipping quotes for a maximum of two weeks. This means that we can only provide an estimate of the shipping quote when you place an order. Once production is nearly completed, we’ll re-assess shipping costs and let you know if there are any changes. We’ll of course do our best to keep shipping as low as possible for you.
We will add 7% VAT for items delivered in Thailand.
・ For payments by credit card, 2% will be added.
・ Since we are based in Thailand our prices are listed in Thai Baht. Listed prices in US Dollar are indicative, will fluctuate with exchange rate.
・ Payment possible in Thai Baht, US Dollar or Euro.
